nice music film
8 February 2006 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

Two great musics survive in La Habana, poor but happy. One day, two Spanish producers decide that they are good enough to have success in Spain, but leaving Cube would mean abandon lots of things, friends, lovers, culture, integrity... Great music and great musicians, is by far the best of the film, with a Goya very deserved in BSO.All the movie is quick and interesting and actors are not bad, so its pleasant to see. It reflects quite well how is the live in La Habana, and all the doubts and decision that people must do if they want to become something in life... For some people, the fact that half of the film is made of music could result bad, but well it does not bores and is interesting. Not bad!!
